This small (98 pages) introductory volume to Ethics dates back to 1963. Frankena gives a good overview of a wide array of topics in a clear, simple and compact style. You can read the book in 2-3hrs. The chapter about the nonmoral good is the best one, but the others are good as well. But if you read it, you better supplement it with newer books as well since moral philosophy has come a long way since the publication of this. (This predates Rawls, Mackie, reappearence of naturalism and realism etc.)

A small gem

I had the good fortune to study ethics with Professor Frankena at the University of Michigan. Later I used this book as a text when I taught college ethics. This book is a model of brevity and clarity in a philosophical world that seems to prize obfuscation. Although it cannot answer every question in the allotted space, this volume is an excellent introduction to ethics.

wonderful introduction

I have read many introductory texts on ethics and moral theory. In my opinion, this is by far the clearest and most helpful of them all. Short and sweet.
